We live in a world, where the young and the old are entwined.
However, it seems we do not truly listen to each other.
Companies, governments, and educational institutions are talking about young people, making decisions for young people, but usually do not talk with young people.
Nevertheless, Jort (17) believes that there is hope! If we dare to look backwards, if we dare to become a pro-dreamer, and if we dare to release our inner Julian, we will go forward,
unite with each other, and live our dream lives.
Therefore, the connection between the young and the old, is worth gold.
Watch Jort Verhage’s TED-Talk and find out who Julian is, how to become a pro-dreamer, and why the connection between the young and the old, is worth gold.
Hi there! My name is Jort Verhage, I am 17 years old and I have a tremendous passion for entrepreneurship, management and organization.

In recent years I have gained a lot of experience by organizing events, setting up companies and meeting great people. I now use this experience to pursue my passions, ambitions and dreams. I have a tremendous passion for entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship gives me the opportunity to bring new ideas to reality, to develop myself and to be of significance to the world. With my company De Hofnar, I represent the voice of young people within companies, governments and educational institutions.

My ambition is to represent the voice of young people as widely as possible. I achieve this by gathering a large network of young people, identifying important information about our target group with them and then meeting with organizations.

My dream is that every young person discovers his or her strength and can fully develop themselves. Within the current education system, young people must become the best version of the system. I help them to become the best version of themselves. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
